THE AVENGERS

The most interesting "The Avengers" news comes from two actors who weren't even involved in the film. First, HitFix spoke with ex-Hulk Edward Norton about his feelings on "The Avengers" and Mark Ruffalo as the new Hulk. The entire piece is actually very revealing, and it's easy to take Norton's quote out of context, so be sure to head over to HitFix and read the entire piece.

"Mark is like a brother to me," Norton told HitFix. "Besides, he's got two kids, and I'm really happy he gets to have this moment with them." The actor went on to note that seeing the film hasn't really been a priority for him.

The other bit of entertaining "Avengers" news comes from the Amazing Spider-Man himself, Andrew Garfield. In an interview with Vulture, the actor expressed how disappointed he was that Spidey wasn't able to make an appearance in Earth's Mightiest Movie.

"I saw it, and I was blown away. And I'm going to see it again this weekend," Garfield told Vulture of "The Avengers." "I have no problem adding to the amount of money it's making! [Laughs] Joss Whedon is a genius, and it's an incredible cast. I was very, very jealous, and I wanted to jump on the screen and play with them. It killed me that I wasn't in it, but I understand why, and I'm not insulted. But hey, if Samuel L. Jackson wants to give me a shout, I'm there for the next one!"

In theaters now

PROMETHEUS

While speaking with Yahoo! Movies, Idris Elba noted the trailer for the film is only a teaser of what the full movie holds.

"There's so much more to it than [what is revealed in] the trailer," Elba told Yahoo! Movies.

The article also revealed this new image of Michael Fassbender as David.

Furthermore, the official Prometheus YouTube channel premiered a new featurette about Charlize Theron's character, Meredith Vickers.

Opens June 8

THE WALKING DEAD

It's not even close to the season three premiere of "The Walking Dead," but the rumor mill has already begun. The Huffington Post has recapped a behind-the-scenes look at season three and posted this lovely two-minute video of zombiriffic action.

Michael Ausiello over at TV Line has mentioned a recurring character named Manuel will join the survivors. Ausiello's sources tell him Manuel is "strong, smart, kinda blue-collar and potentially the comic relief the show has never really had."

Premieres this fall on AMC

MEN IN BLACK 3

"Men in Black 3" premieres this Friday and Yahoo! Movies has posted a new featurette focusing on "Flight of the Conchords" star Jemaine Clement's character Boris the Animal.

Opens May 25

KICK-ASS 2

Mark Millar spoke with Digital Spy during this year's Kapow 2012 about the upcoming "Kick-Ass" sequel and the creator gave a few tidbits about what to expect from the upcoming film.

"Every horrible scene in the book will be in the film," Millar told Digital Spy. "The c**t line in the first one, everybody said 'there's no way you're getting that in the movie', but it happened and it's the same thing with this. Everybody is saying 'you can't have a gang rape scene with supervillains' and 'you can't have the dog's head cut off', but every single one of those scenes will go in it."

Furthermore, Millar noted the material from the "Hit Girl" miniseries will be "the first 30 minutes of the movie" and will be structured as the first act of the film.

MS. MARVEL

Take this one with a massive grain of salt as it is completely unconfirmed, but DC Women Kicking Ass cites reporter Abby Chandler as quoting Joe Quesada saying a script for a "Ms. Marvel" movie is ready to go and Marvel just needs an actress. There is no direct quote from Quesada to corroborate and at this point, it's all very murky -- but it would be pretty cool to have a Carol Danvers film.
